    In both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions, it is believed that certain mystics and saints receive a gift from God that make them poetic conduits of the divine, bearers of "love poems from God."

    Twelve of these timeless spiritual writers, six from the East and six from the West, are beautifully presented in the Inspirational volume. Daniel Ladinsky, best known for his gifted translations of the great Sufi poet Hafiz, brings his art to this rich and luminous collection.

    "This magnificent feast of ecstasy and sacred truth has been cooked by a master translator and authentic mystic."
    —Andrew Harvey

    "Open any page and experience the Wow!' . . . Keep this book next to your bed tso you can reach for it in the dark."
    —Sylvia Boorstein

    Daniel Ladinsky was born in 1948 and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. For six years he made his home in western India, where he worked in a rural clinic free to the poor and lived with the family of Meher Baba, who some consider to have been the Christ come again. He has published three volumes of Hafiz's poetry in translation: The Gift, The Subject Tonight Is Love, and I Heard God Laughing. He plans to retire to his mountain farm with his sweetheart Kathy and their four dogs and two cats.
